The Bedroom Safety Tips here are particularly intended for those who maybe suffer with Parkinson’s disease or some other debilitating illness. Bedrooms are supposed to be where we feel at our most safe and secure, so it’s important that we make sure we keep it that way, don’t you think?

  • Bed height – make sure that the height of your bed makes it easy for you to get into and out of safely.
  • Toileting – if your bed is not close to the bathroom it might be worth your while to get a commode or a urinal to make life that little bit easier for you.
  • Clothing Storage – make sure that you can easily reach the clothing rods and that they are not too high.  It’s a good idea to have a light installed in the closet, and also to make sure that any dressers are not so low as to need you to stoop to reach them. Everything needs to be at an easy “workable” height.
  • Floor Coverings – need to be secure, we’re talking the edges of carpets and rugs in particular, a potential tripping hazard if they are not properly dealt with.
  • Lights and switches should be easily switched on and off from your bed.
  • Night lights are a good idea, particularly if you, like many other sufferers, make frequent night time trips to the bathroom.
  • Smoke Alarms are essential in all homes to alert you of potential danger from fire.
  • Clock and Telephone should also be reachable from the bed, in case you need to call someone in an emergency situation.

All of these precautions will help to minimize your risk of falling and make your life just that little bit easier.
